Playing Jessa Duggar Breaks Her Social Media Silence Following Josh Duggar Molestation Scandal

Jessa Duggar is focusing on the positive -- specifically, her own life-changing event -- following her 27-year-old brother Josh's molestation scandal.

The 22-year-old 19 Kids and Counting star, who has remained silent on social media since the scandal broke, took to Instagram on Wednesday to post the ultrasound of her first child with husband Ben Seewald.

"#BabySeewald makes a first appearance today!!!" she excitedly wrote. "#19weeks3days Yay! Almost halfway! Your daddy and I love you soooo much!"

Meanwhile, her older sister, 24-year-old Jill Duggar, took to Twitter on Tuesday to share never-before-seen pictures of her adorable two-month-old son Israel.


"Happy 2 month birthday #IsraelDavidDillard!" Jill also Instagrammed on Sunday. "We are so blessed to be your parents! May you grow up to love Jesus and serve others! #2monthbirthday @derickdillard."

Last week, Jessa and Jill both confirmed that they are two of Josh's victims in an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly. "Well, I think in the case of what Josh did, it was very wrong," Jessa said. "I'm not going to justify anything that he did or say it was OK, not permissible, but I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, [like] some people are saying. I'm like, 'That is so overboard and a lie, really.' I mean, people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims."

"Josh was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls," she added. "And that got him into some trouble."

On Tuesday, moving trucks were spotted outside of Josh's Maryland home. Sources tell ET that the former lobbyist is moving back to Arkansas, where the Duggar family is based. Another surprise? He's also hired fellow TLC star Kate Gosselin's bodyguard, Steve Nield. Watch below:
